Reread the post i edit, Ted Thompson doesn't own the team, the fans do... We went nuts over Jim, if they go nuts over MJD it's game over, an Ted will make that trade. Watch out for the mob, he doesn't an they get knocked out after one game in the playoffs, it will be Ted Thompson who will have his head on the line, an your not going to get a Top back in the bottom of the draft, an they have a better chance to trade for MJD than to trade up to get one... Same with the pats, they can't find tom a running game either, because they always pick so late....
Another example, Dan Marino, you can have the greatest qb ever on your team, but without a running game your one dimensional an teams will stop the run, force the pass an eat you alive...
Another example, Niners, we stop the run, we force teams to be one dimensional an pass, which is why we win so many dam games last season.
Sometimes you have to take a risk, an in this case, MJD risk is very very small risk, an the payoff could be hugh. Come on trade a 1st or even 2 seconds for a running back that gets your another SUPERBOWL WIN, or get knocked out of the playoffs, because if the packers play us without him, were going to stop the run, and let aldon and justin an raymac, an brooks go to town on Aarons ass.
I hope they don't do the trade, that just makes it easier for us to get a shot for another Ring ourselves..
The Packers fan have no say in roster moves. If Ted Thompson sees fit to trade for him then he will, if it's a steep price, for a almost 30 year old back, a 1st is way way too much. He is gonna slow down. He has been the workhorse for a few years, it all goes downhill fast for those backs.
Well they may not make the roster moves, an we had no control over getting jim... RIGHT! It's a mob, he's 27 less wear on his body than any other running back. An Gore hasn't slowed down an he's had 2 knees blown, an a hip fracture.
Fine lets end this 30 year old wall right now!!!
There are a very select few running backs that have broken through the 30-year-old wall, but no back has ever rushed for more than 1,000 yards in three seasons after their 30th birthday is b******t.
Example, For eight years, George piled up the carries and the yards. Not once in his first eight seasons did he carry the ball fewer than 312 times or rush for fewer than 939 yards. That includes a decent season as a 30-year-old.
Example, Fred Jackson... He's 6'1 215 with pads on lol he's 31
Examples, Walter Payton, Payton ran for over 1,000 yards in 10 of his 13 NFL seasons, with three of those 1,000 yards season occurring when he was ages 30-32. Ricky Williams ran for over 1000 yards at 33... Warrick Dunn, had a surprisingly lengthy career for such a small player at a position that takes a huge beating, Dunn ran for over 1,000 yards in 2005 and 2006 when he was 30 and 31, he's 5'8 an 180... Franco Harris, ran for over 1,000 yards in 1983 when he was 32. Thomas Jones, Jones has run for over 1,000 yards since 2005, with the 2009 season as his best statistically at the age of 31, at 32 in a reduced role ran for 896 yards for the chiefs.
Examples, John Riggins, He ran for over 1,000 yards three times after the age of 30, with his final two coming at the ages of 34 and 35.
Tony Dorsett, His last year of rushing for over 1,000 yards came in 1985 when he was 31 years old. Emmitt Smith, He ran for over 1,000 yards from 1999-2001, and in those three years he was ages 30-32.
Examples, Barry Sanders, Ending his career short at the age of 30, Sanders ran for 1,491 yards as a 30-year-old and he would have easily ran for 1,000 yards at 31, 32, and who knows for how long.Tiki Barber, Barber ran for over 1,000 yards in five of his last six years before retiring.The final two years in 2005 and 2006, were indeed his best and he was 30 and 31 respectively.Barber could have continued to run at a high level, but instead called it quits while he was on top of his game.
Examples Marcus Allen amassed 17,654 yards of total offense and scored 145 total touchdowns during his 16 years as a running back. Ricky Watters, In 1999 and 2000, Watters ran for over 1,000 yards when he was 30 and 31 years old. Curtis Martin, Martin ran for over 1,000 yards in 2003 and 2004, when he was 30 and 31, and it should be noted that as a 31-year-old in 2004, Martin ran for nearly 1,700 yards, and in his final season he still got 735 yards.
An last but not least the man who MJD replaced, Fred Taylor, 1,000 yards in 2006 and 2007, when he was 30 and 31 respectively. That man keeped MJD from taking a hugh pounding, an i think has another 3 years before turning 30, plus his body has the pounding of a 25 year olds because of Fred Taylor...
O my God did you just watch the berlin wall fall down again.
